Putting Pressure on the Government Tools
In the latest tiff over Wiki-leaks now encompasses Corporate giants Amazon and Pay pal. Now I urge everyone that believes in freedom of press, speech and information to do the same. We have to send the message that Consumer pressure outweighs government pressure. This country really needs a reminder of where the power in this country truly lies. This is not about Wiki-leaks as much as its about free speech and freedom of Press. And I am completely and truly aware that some content released by Wiki-Leaks could endanger our troops. However the truth has to come first and foremost. And lets be completely real, I have read not all but several of these documents and its pretty clear the Government is totally overplaying the danger card. What they are more concerned about is the preservation of the Government's honor and credibility. They just haven't been told their Honor and Credibility are beyond repair. So how much longer are we going to sit on our hands and look the other way?
